Marc Jacobs: I Was Not A Fat Heroin Addict
What is it about gay fashion designers being absolutely perfect at giving interviews? From Tom Ford’s godly perfection to Karl Lagerfeld and Roberto Cavalli’s lost-in-translation hilarious one-liners, Marc Jacobs has just joined the list at being the best at interviews.

In case you didn’t know, there was a time when Marc Jacobs wasn’t wearing speedos and dresses. He used to be a nerd and he used to be a little bit chubs. He then started doing lots of coke and heroin and got super skinny and was very popular in that 90’s heroin kind of way.

Anyways, cut to last year and journalist Robert Duffy calls Marc Jacobs a “fat heroin addict” in an interview.

Well, Marc Jacobs wont stand for such talk and sets the record straight.

“That was the stupidest thing I ever heard, because first of all I was never a fat heroin addict, I was a skinny heroin addict – and I got over that luckily. I was fat when I stopped doing drugs, not while I was doing drugs. I don’t know anyone who’s fat when they’re doing drugs.”

Good thing we got that sorted out.

He also goes on about how everything he designs is all stuff you don’t need. You really don’t NEED Marc Jacobs or Louis Vuitton products.

“Luxury is anything you don’t need, right?” Jacobs revealed in an interview for Germany’s Interview magazine, “I mean, you need food, water, clothing, shelter…but good wine, good food, beautiful interiors, nice clothes; those aren’t necessities, they are luxuries – it’s all luxury.”

Throughout the interview, Jacobs is chain smoking like the world is about to run out of cigarettes.

“Drinking..Smoking is the best. Smoking and sleeping are the two best things in the world!”

But with a life of luxury, smoking, and being a recovered skinny heroin addict, there’s just no time to exercise. I’m still wondering where he got that rocking bod he’s always showing off on the beach.

“Running for me, is really hard, first of all, I don’t like to run and second my smoking habit makes it even more difficult.”
